One day WITHOUT shoes

    TOMS. One Day Without Shoes. April 10. Poverty. Raising Awareness.

      OK, so let me explain. TOMS, a shoe company, gives one pair of shoes to a child in need every time you buy a pair. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Totally. But enough of me going on about some of my favorite shoes. Back to the point. TOMS has this event every year which is called One day without shoes. Yes, One day WITHOUT shoes. That means they try to get people to raise awareness of all the people in countries walking around barefoot in disgusting places just because they can not afford to buy shoes. I’ve been to Africa, seen the areas, these people need shoes! This is why what TOMS is doing is so great. They understand! That is why, last year and this year on April 10, 2012, I did not hesitate to kick off the shoes and set out on a one day journey to find out what children in third world countries go through every day. TOMS wants people to go barefoot for just one day so that they can understand what these people go through. So I know you might not want to walk around America barefoot but it is an amazing experience. Think about it for next year.  So what does this have to do with E4E? Nothing. It just reflects what E4E is all about. Raising Awareness and helping those in need. But now you know about this opportunity. This was my second year and I don’t regret it.

 Keep up with TOMS and find out when the next One Day Without Shoes is!

Watch for my next post about a contest!
